According to a press release, Lisa Russo is trained in the traditional style of painting. After earning her BFA degree, she studied under a traditional oil painter to learn the techniques and methods used to create many of the masterpieces from the 1600s.

Russo holds a U.S. patent for a convertible canvas that allows a two-dimensional painting to display in different three-dimensional forms, adding an unconventional twist to the traditional.
